Wedding season is already in full swing! Brides all over the globe are ticking off the last items on their To Do Lists, having their final fittings and booking in last minute beauty treatments in the run up to their big day. Our featured bride, Alex was one of these brides last month. Alas, she has allowed us to share all the best bits from her beautiful May 1st wedding to Paul with all of you. Enjoy!
We asked Alex to share one tip for our brides to be. Here is what Alex had to say:
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself as “the bride”. Be happy as you are within yourself and that will shine through in the pictures.
Also take a few minutes to spend time with your husband on the day.. It’s great to reflect briefly otherwise the day flies by.
We had a mobile crèche service for our child and other children. That meant that during dinner and speeches the children ate separately and were entertained whilst parents could enjoy their meal and speeches uninterrupted.
We absolutely adore Alex’s gown and think she made a beautiful bride! We wish her and Paul- and gorgeous little Darcey- many happy years together!
